Tim Tebow gave a sick teen the trip of a lifetime

Tim Tebow Gives Sick Virginian Teen The Trip of a Lifetime

Former NFL football Tim Tebow gave a sick Virginian teen the trip of a lifetime.

18-year-old Haley Burke has been battling Ehlers-danlos syndrome, an inherited connective tissue disorder, since she was 15 and has dreamed of meeting former Florida Gators quarterback Tim Tebow. She reached out to the Tim Tebow Foundation W15H Program, and they turned that dream into a reality.



Burke and her family were flown out to Scottsdale, Arizona and where she was greeted by the 27-year-old. Over the course of a four day stay, she was given an aerial tour of the Grand Canyon, enjoyed a day at a spa, got to throw out the first pitch during an Arizona Diamondbacks baseball game, and had a training session with Tebow.

But it seems it was Tebow who got the most out of the experience. He told People, "They're amazing. The entire time i was with them, i was so inspired by their strength and courage in facing every day and every struggle with a positive attitude."

Tebow, a devout Christian, says the Tim Tebow Foundation is one of the most important things in his life because it allows him to improve the lives of people all around the world. In addition to the W15H Program, his foundation has built children's hospitals in countries all around the world.
